I have an old squier strat body and a sunn mustang neck. Thinking about a sonic blue body with two pickups on a mintgreen pickguard. Where can i get a mintgreen pickguard with two singleholes (europe would be cool)?

I also think about a 5-way-switch with the options neck -- both parallel -- both out-of-phase -- both serial -- bridge. Does someone have a wiring diagram for this?

[pictures will follow]

Warmoth... not in Europe but that's the most hassle-free bet I take on Strat pickguards nowadays, especially if mint green/funny configs are required.


They made and shipped me this one in one week (I'm in the States but still) and it was $25. You can get either mounting hole pattern, mine is a mis-match because I originally bought this guard for a different body. I'd previously had Warmoth do a 3-pickup one that was otherwise similar.



Also your project reminds me in essence of Parquet Courts's Austin Brown's Bullet Strat

Just a pickguard for $25 costs $28 shipping to germany. Think i will buy a blank and drill the pickupholes myself...

What do you mean - does it make sense to do a 5-way switching? Or is it more useful to use a simple 3-way switch?

As longer as i look at Austin Brown's strat, as better i think about a standard strat pickguard leaving the middlepickup as a hole... Smile

That sucks, I figured shipping would be hefty but I guess that really rules it out.... there are surely pickguard makers over there that can do it for you.

I go 3-way switch and vol/tone for two pickup Strats, it's just a Tele scheme. With that in mind you could do the 4-way Tele switch for both series/parallel middle positions if you wanted.

Depending where you want the pickups:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stratocaster-Blank-SS-Pickguard-6-hole-US-spec-Strat-no-bridge-pup-route-various-/111695714171

Personally I hate the bridge pickup on Strats so that looks good.

That's a rad idea! Shocked

I'd prefered the combination neck / bridge. But i will think about this reason... Looks very cool and unusual!

I don't know too much about Sunn Mustangs, but you might want to make sure the strat body and you Sunn neck will work together and intonate. What is the scale of the neck and how many frets does it have?

Sunn Mustangs are close Stratcopies from an indian company. They were licensed by Fender (FMIC).
As i know, are they 25,5". I think, there is no problem with intonation.

smdh at that guy taking out the middle pickup and leaving a hole.

i like the look of duo sonic strats if done properly, but wouldn't have them myself. the bridge-middle quack position is too good

I've done some aging to see the sunburst under the sonic blue color. Like it a lot.

I've finished my duosonic. Smile

I really like it. The sunn neck is a pleasure. The pickups are cheap squier ones, and i will swap them in future, but for the moment, they sound not bad.

Here's some pics:
